'Jacks' slow start leads to end of season
Globe opens game with 12-0 run on way to 95-59 district win

VALHALLA, N.Y. – Last Sunday, Chesapeake College scored the first 13 points on the way to a 96-74 men’s basketball victory over Garrett College in the NJCAA Division I Region XX championship game.

The Skipjacks found out Saturday how it feels to be on the receiving end of an early knockout punch.

Globe Institute of Technology (19-9) scored the first 12 points of Saturday’s District 3 semifinal on the way to a 95-59 victory over the Skipjacks. Chesapeake (27-5) mounted several comeback attempts, but could get no closer than 10 points after Globe’s opening thrust.

Chesapeake head coach John Mappas said Globe was simply the better team on that day.

"We scored 30 points under our average," said Mappas. "That’s the worst we’ve played all year. We’ve had halves where we played that way, but we’ver never played that poorly for a whole game."

Dishawn Bradshaw scored a game-high 25 points and Mike Campbell added 23 for the Knights as they qualified for the District 3 title game against Vincennes University, a 62-54 winner over Monroe College in Saturday’s other semifinal. Vincennes defeated Globe, 98-67, Sunday to advance to the national tournament.

Andrew Lee and Ty Newman scored 20 points each against Globe to pace the Skipjacks, who won the Region XX title for the first time in school history this season.

Campbell had five points during Globe’s game-opening run, which was capped by a Rob Robinson transition layup that made it 12-0. Aubin Reeves’ reverse layup with 15:20 remaining in the first half broke the shutout for the Skipjacks, who also pulled within 10 points on a Ty Newman 3-pointer that cut the deficit to 18-8.

Globe, however, wore down the Skipjacks with their height, depth and 3-point shooting. The Knights spent the rest of the first half building on their lead, which reached 47-27 when Campbell scored on a second-chance shot to cap the first half.

The Knights began the second half just like they started the game. Globe went on a 14-4 run out of intermission – the last five points by Robinson – to take a 61-31 lead and blow the game wide open.

Globe, which had a 47-25 rebounding advantage, went 10-for-16 from the 3-point line compared to 6-for-17 by the Skipjacks.
